Anxi County, world-famous for its rich tea culture traditions, is rightly considered to be the native land of Chinese oolong teas. Peasants and monks of Buddhist monasteries have been engaged in cultivation and processing of tea since the Tang Dynasty (618-907 AC).The Tie Guan Yin tree comes from the western part of the Anxi County, so called the inside Anxi sub-region. Here myriads of rocky peaks reach into the sky in the midst of majestic mountains stretching for miles around. The tea here is picked up to four times a year, but autumn and spring pickings are graded the best.  During processing, the tea leaves are shaped into a characteristic form: the tea’s sturdy leaves are tightly curled into tiny cannonballs resembling a dragonfly’s head. The tea leaves open up in the golden infusion, saturating it with a rich floral and fruity aroma, with notes of brisk freshness.
